Eucalyptyus Organic Essential Oil .25 oz
Known for its strong clearing abilities, eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) is one of the most popular essential oils as it’s inexpensive, easy to use and very effective. Eucalyptus leaves have a naturally sweet aroma but, through proper distillation, the essential oil becomes brisk and camphoraceous.
Aura Cacia Eucalyptus Essential Oil typically comes from a village in the Yunnan mountain area of southern China. It was planted in China to reforest the area nearly 100 years ago. Distillers use the small pieces of wood on which the leaves are attached to supply the heat necessary to create the steam for distillation.
What’s the difference between organic eucalyptus essential oil and conventional eucalyptus essential oil? Organic essential oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA’s Organic Standards. Aura Cacia's manufacturing facility and all of their organic essential oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
• Eucalyptus essential oil is dominated by cineole, which gives it a fresh, herbaceous smell. The cineole content can be as high as 80%, so the oil can be quite strong.
• The aroma of eucalyptus can dominate a blend so it’s often used alone but it can combine well with frankincense, peppermint, and rosemary and conifer essential oils.
• Eucalyptus essential oil is often used in skincare oils, bath blends, home cleaning products, and indoor and outdoor diffusions.
• Eucalyptus essential oil is generally considered a top note.
